Thank you for your response. Your great grand uncle, Joseph, may be the father of Sophia. I received info about a Joseph C. Carroll, age 76, in the 1880 census in Carroll Co. and also Sophia's first son was named Joseph. Do you have a birth date for your Joseph? Sophia was my gggrandmother. She married Simeon Sheckler in 1850 in Carroll Co. and although I have alot of info on the Shecklers I know nothing about Sophia. Do you think that the spelling of the name could have been changed to match the county after Carroll Co. was formed?
